Photo Challenge #33 / The Great Outdoors

IMG_0387“Salt Lake at Sunset” / Theme: The Great Outdoors

A little about this photo…

This photo was taken at Manitou Beach in Saskatchewan. Little Manitou Lake is a salt lake. We didn’t actually go swimming in it on this visit since, when we arrived, because of the winds. We practically were blown away. This photo was taken in the calm after the storm.

Photo Challenge #32 / It’s Hot

IMG_0234“Tug-a-War” / Theme: It’s Hot

A little about this photo…

I saw these sculptures in a park. (This is just one in a series.) I absolutely loved the playful tone! I’m choosing “It’s Hot” for my prompt because, well, isn’t a game of tug-a-war perfect for a beautiful, hot summer day?

Photo Challenge #31 / Rule of Thirds

IMG_0528“Bridge at Dusk” / Theme: Rule of Thirds

A little about this photo…

Grabbed this shot on a photo shoot. We were walking back along a path on the river when I saw this. Loved the lights reflecting in the water. I put the bridge is in the upper thirds of the photo and… Bam! One more prompt completed. 🙂

Photo Challenge #30 / More Please!

IMG_0423“Have Your Cake…” / Theme: More Please!

A little about this photo…

I love how photography allows you to have your cake and eat it, too!

When my niece was asked what kind of cake she wanted for her birthday, she replied “any cake with whipped cream.” So this is the cake we made for her. And… it was delicious! Can I have another piece of cake?

Photo Challenge #29 / Sunset

IMG_9562“Painted Sky” / Theme: Sunset

A little about this photo…

The colour of the sunset was stunning a few nights ago. I grabbed my camera and practically ran out of the house to get this shot. Got two random houses, but I love how their silhouettes are juxtaposed against that amazing painted sky!

Photo Challenge #28 / Here I Stand

IMG_9242“Dress Form” / Theme: Here I Stand

A little about this photo…

There was this old board game we used to play as kids called “Scavenger Hunt”. It had a dress form as one of the items you had to find. When I saw this, it made me think of that game!

I’ve decided to go with the “Here I Stand” prompt for this week. 🙂

Photo Challenge #27 / Nighttime

IMG_9645“Lighting Up the Night Sky” / Theme: Nighttime

A little about this photo…

It’s fireworks-time in my part of the world. I chose this photo for my “Nighttime” prompt. Who doesn’t like fireworks?

(Actually, I do know people who don’t like fireworks. A family friend, for one. When I asked her why, she said they bring back memories of the bombs that fell in her city when she was a kid during World War II. Makes complete sense.)

Photo Challenge #25 / Flower

IMG_9221“Dried Memories” / Theme: Flower

A little about this photo…

These are dried white roses. Of course, they look kind of yellow, don’t they? I always think there’s just something about dried flowers. Seeing them hanging there, upside down. They’re beautiful in their own way.

Maybe it’s the memories they bring back when we look at them.

Photo Challenge #24 / Silhouette

IMG_8920n“Prepare for Blast Off” / Theme: Silhouette

A little about this photo…

Not sure if it was meant to look like a rocket ship, but that’s what this slide reminds me of. Oh, that I were a kid again! I would have adored this playground… As it was, I did enjoy watching all the kids rushing around, having a blast.
